Jerry Vane : [after saving Mannix from an almost deliberate hit-and-run] Crazy fool could've killed you!
Joe Mannix : Yeah, thanks, huh?
Jerry Vane : You, uh, debt collecting?
Joe Mannix : No.
Jerry Vane : Bail bondsman.
Joe Mannix : No. Why? Should I be?
Jerry Vane : Well, looked like that creep was trying to hit you.
Joe Mannix : Why would he do a thing like that?
Jerry Vane : You want me to find out? I got his license number. Come on, let's, uh... let's talk about it over a cup of coffee.
Joe Mannix : Uh, no, thanks. Maybe some other time, huh?
Jerry Vane : Yeah, sure. Uh, here's my card. Uh... call me.
[hands Mannix his card]
Joe Mannix : [reading the card] Jerry Vane, private investigator.
Jerry Vane : One of the best, if I say so myself. What's your name?
Joe Mannix : Mannix.
Jerry Vane : Pleasure to meet you, Mr. Man... Joe Mannix?
Jerry Vane : First whiff of a job I get all month, and it turns out to be Mr. Private Peeper himself.
Joe Mannix : Now, look, uh...
Jerry Vane : Oh, no, no, no, no. Please, please. I wouldn't hear of it. Uh, consider it, uh, professional courtesy. You know, one... one pro to another.
Joe Mannix : Thanks. I mean it.
[turns and walks away]
Jerry Vane : If anybody's going to turn up Gordon Cameron...
[Mannix stops and turns]
Jerry Vane : ... you're the guy, Mannix.
Joe Mannix : [opens his car door] Hop in. Let's have that cup of coffee.
[Vane nods and gets into the passenger seat of Mannix's car]
